Spring Semester

Yesterday lingers
in my memory today
Perched on a manicured hill
after the last bell
All my friends surrounding me
She strolls by, I catch blue eyes
glance quickly my way
A scented letter...
I rent a white tuxedo
for her Sorority dance
She's dressed in blue silk
We are formally announced
Arm-in-arm I escort her
through a flowered arch
to that shining floor...
The band sings a sweet slow song
I breathe in her perfume scent
Shivering slightly...
she snuggles ever closer,
humming the same melody
softly in my ear

    OH wow, what a wonderful picture you painted. Very romantic, Tim. And hey, I have like four hundred records, 45's that my husband would dearly love to toss out the door. Do you think I can get anything for them?

    Very sweet Tim. Those were the days, weren't they? I love your opening line "Yesterday lingers in my memory today..." oh yeah! And thank you for your kind comment on my "Dream" poem, adding your energy to the idea.

    What a wonderful memory, Tim. You evoked some nostalgia for me in your poem as well. As they say, "Those were the days, my friend." Love, Carolyn
